    I am not familiar with your synth. Some synths with internal sequencer are only multitimbral when using their own sequencer, like the Casio CZ 5000.

    What would be a good test, is to set up different channels in Cubase with the MIDI channels 1 - 8 an try these channels one by one and just see if the different channels produce different sounds. If that is the case, you synth is multitimbral outside of its own sequencer.

    Some tips:

    Search your manual for details on these:

    Set local control to OFF

    1. Base MIDI channel can be on 1, no problem. This is only important if you have more synths connected.
    2. Clock source should be INTERNAL to prevent Cubase from starting your internal sequencer.
    3. Xmit MIDI clocks OFF, of no relevance.
    4. Bank n Prog receive ON if you want Cubase to send program changes.

    The rest of that is too difficult from here.
